Hole In One International Picks Up the Tab

WPOW-MAIN_Image-WINNER-RoperHonda-02Joplin, Mo. — Meet Gary Greene of Carl Junction. Last August during the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual fundraising Hot Links Golf Tournament, Greene won a 2014 Honda Accord, courtesy of Roper Honda, and paid for by Hole In One International.

Greene won the new set of wheels after acing the 140-yard 16th Hole at the Eagle Creek Golf Club with an 8 iron. But here’s what makes the story even more amazing — this wasn’t Greene’s first hole in one — or even his second. Nope, this was Greene’s sixth hole in one. Yep, that’s right SIX! Although it was the first time he’s ever won a prize.

According to Stephanie McGrew, Member Events Producer with the Joplin Chamber, the Hot Links Annual Golf Tournament is not only one of the premier golf events in the Joplin area but also one of the Chamber’s leading fundraising activities, raising $20,000 last year. McGrew, who has been working with Hole In One International since 2003, was shocked and thrilled to have a winner as was the hole iIn one contest sponsor, Roper Honda.

“Hole In One International’s service went way beyond my expectations. When we had the winner, everyone said to me, ‘Oh, now your work begins.’ I expected this long drawn out process, but within minutes of reporting the claim, the paperwork was emailed to my phone. I had the pro print it, we filled it out, sent it back and I was done! I just couldn’t believe how easy it was,” explained McGrew.

Auto Group Has Two Hole In One Winners This Summer

Olathe, Kansas –Karl Kramer, the General Manager of seven dealership strong McCarthy Auto Group, may have been Hole In One International’s luckiest customer this summer. He not only handed over the keys to a brand new Chevy Equinox in June, but he turned around and handed over the keys to a brand new Nissan Rogue in September.

Kramer’s winning season of sponsorship started at the  300 person Trent Green Golf Classic where Todd Gafney of Overland Park, aced the 201-yard 11 Hole with a 3 iron at the Shoal Creek Golf Course winning a brand new Chevy Equinox. Then, in September during the 17th Annual Convenience Store Open, which benefits The Dream Factory, Jeffery Brandt of Blue Springs, Mo.,nailed the 167-yard 14 Hole with his 5-iron at the Prairie Highland Golf Course in Olathe, winning a brand new Nissan Rogue.

Todd Gafney ChevyAccording to Kramer, the McCarthy Group sponsors between 10 and 15 events per year. “Hole in sponsorships just make sense. As dealers we want to give back to our communities and hole in one insurance is cost effective. You choose a vehicle based on the MSRP, then you look at the yardage, the hole, the number of players and really for $300-$400, you get amazing community visibility. It’s affordable and the organizations are so appreciative. It makes a big impression.”

“I’ve worked with Evelyn Golding on a number of promotions.  She’s my go-to gal. The claims process is easy. I never have to worry – not about signs, not about when there’s a winner. I’ve been using Hole In One International for two years now. Working with Hole In One International has been very very good.”

Putting Contest Winner: Matt Norby

Congratulations to Matt Norby!

Grand Forks, N.D. – This June during Edgewood Management Group’s 2nd Annual Longest Day Golf Tournament, Matt Norby of Grand Forks won an 8-day/7-night Hawaiian vacation, valued at $3,000, courtesy of Edgewood Management Group, and paid for by Hole In One International.

Norby won the prize after he holed an impressive 50-foot putt during a fundraising putting contest which took place on 9th hole at the Kings Walk Golf Course, immediately following the tournament.

To participate in the fuIM-Putting-NorbyMatt-H358121ndraiser, golfers made a donation and took a qualifying shot on the practice green. Those who successfully made the initial 25-foot qualifying putt took their best shot at a 50-foot putt. After getting closest to the hole in those semi-finals, Norby got the chance to take another 50-footer on the 9th hole, this time nailing the shot, winning the Hawaii vacation for two.

But winning the tropical trip wasn’t the only surprise of the day. Turns out Norby had bet that if made the putt, he’d take a little swim.  Check out the prize winning putt – and Norby’s celebration dip.

According to Hollie Britten, Corporate Sales and Marketing Manager with Edgewood Management Group, the morning-to-evening “Longest Day” event, recognizes those who live with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.

“This event is about educational outreach as well as raising money for the Alzheimer’s Association. We hold an awareness walk – a quick 1 mile, followed by a community breakfast. The golf tournament begins mid-morning with the putting contest qualifying taking place all day on the putting green. Then, after the tournament we had the putting contest finals, followed by awards and a live band on the deck at the golf course,” explained Britten.

“Working with Hole In One International was very easy – very smooth. But of course the best part was getting to walk across the street to Matt’s office and hand him that vacation voucher. That was fantastic,” continued Britten.

We thought that was pretty fantastic too! Looking for an affordable way to support a great cause in your community? Check out more ideas or give Hole In One International a call today at 800-827-2249.

Edgewood Management Group owns and/or operates 53 independent living, assisted living and memory care communities in seven states. The organization raised an impressive $27,000 during their Longest Day events with all proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Association.
